So. Yesterday’s post was a bit raw. I’m sorry about that. But I meant it. Every word. So. Make of that what you will. And I’ll just go from there with it, I guess. I mean, nothing will come of it. But….you never know.
Okay, so, in the never-ending employment saga of Mouse….
Back in December, I was hired on at a local utility company through a local temp agency, to assist with accounting and billing. Do you remember?
That assignment was supposed to last through April 2017, with the possibility of extension.
Well? At the start of this month (February 2nd, to be exact), the utility company ended my temporary assignment with them.
Which came as a complete surprise to me. Because I thought everything was going really well. I had a handle on the “Hi/Lows,” and I had just received training in setting up Landlord Agreements (long process, that, and an equally long story).
So, yeah, I thought everything was going really well.
But apparently, the company had finally gotten a lot of their backlog caught up, and the remaining backlog would be workable with the staff they currently had. So they ended a lot of temporary assignments on that day.
And mine was one of them.
So. Royal bummer.
So for the past two weeks or so, I’ve been unemployed. Again. Why I didn’t mention that until this point in time….well, I don’t really know.
Last week, I got a phone call from the local temp agency again, with a possible new assignment.
It would be a records-type position, involving pulling active and inactive files, and scanning and indexing them. For the company to go paperless, basically.
Guess where this assignment is going to be at?
Remember the local insurance company I worked for before I moved out of state last year?
Yeah! That company!
I was thrilled at that, because I already know their imaging system (provided they haven’t changed it in the year I’ve been gone). And it’s at the location in nearby Hiawatha….where Elvie and younger Michelle both work (or still work there, hopefully). Do you remember my talking about Elvie and younger Michelle? So I might get to see them again.
I start tomorrow. My work hours are 8:00 to 4:30.
Unfortunately, the insurance company is not looking for full-time candidates as, according to my former supervisor Diane, they recently had a workforce reduction, and so were not looking to fill any full-time positions any time soon.
But still, this could lead to another permanent position within the company.
It did last time, remember? (When I went from the temporary administrative assistant to the full-time records specialist.)
We’ll see how it goes, I guess.
I can’t wait to get back to work!
(No, I am very happy to be getting back to work, but this picture is just funny, so I’m using it.)
